Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-05 20:51:13 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #212351 +++

Ian Jackson discovered that accesses beyond end of qemu emulated disk devices
can result in accesses to emulator's virtual memory space accesses and thus can
allow user with sufficient privilege in guest (root, as this would need
modification to kernel's driver) to break out of VM.
